    I should have specified about the spacer. The spacer I was talking about is 1/4" thick and it corrects the driver side lean.
    This product here: http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=115&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
    I made the mistake of putting a spacer lift on my 2001 Tacoma. That is something I will never do to any truck again. The ride was absolutely horrible, banging and clanking. It sucked. That was on the road, no offroad at all.

    ^^^Do this way before you do a spacer lift. Please, for the love of your truck. :)

    I would go with Bilstein 5100's, rear AAL and LR UCA's (only because I couldn't get mine aligned properly at 2.5" without them). You're around $800 there.

    and to the op, i had i think because i just upgraded to toyteks ultimate lift kit. a 1.5" spacer lift with cut out fenders courtesy of the previous owner. and he fit 285/75/17s on there with minor rubbing on full turns

    you honestly need to think that its your truck and what you want. like a cheap lift that will look good. or a lift that will last a life time and is functional. ive learned from the head aches. now ill just save up and buy the best and do it once.

    It is a spacer lift. And it is the same as other spacer lifts but includes new rear shocks. Everyone has different opinions. RC lift works perfectly for me but everyone is different. Its your truck so its all up to you man!

    how much lift do you want?
    what size tires do you want to run?
    is losing MPG's a concern for you?
    stay below 3inches or go with a drop bracket lift, this is my advice to you from my personal expierence...
